    Default NetworkManager Missing on eeePC HD Install

    I have installed BT4 on an eeePC 1000HA and followed the driver installation thread in this forum


    I can get wireless and ethernet working without problems.

    However for some reason NetworkManager does seem to be present in the install. I tried to install it and received a bunch of dependencies with it finally indicated that it would unstall some backtrack packages. I didn't want to do that before checking with others.

    Has anyone else seen this? Any advise would be appreciated.

    I searched the forums, etc and haven't found anything.

    Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
    the package is simply not installable and a bug report against

    Use:

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/wicd start
    then
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/wicd-client
    to connect to networks.
